Let's start! One-day conference on Multidisciplinary Archaeology

The first RAINDROPS event will be to co-host a one-day conference on Trends in Multidisciplinary Archaeology. This conference is part of the annual Archaeology day (Jornades de Arqueologia) organised by Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Department of Humanities and the Institute of History Jaume Vicens i Vives (IUHJVV). The event will take place on January 9th (9.30-18.00) in the Auditorium Mercè Rodoreda of UPF Campus Ciutadella. Attendance is free though space is limited.

Here is the conference abstract and program:

Born within the beaux-arts and raised inside the humanities and the social sciences, archaeology has long emerged from its original antiquarian purposes. Current archaeology routinely crossbreeds with a variety of other disciplines to accomplish its duty of shedding light on the human pasts. Research on earlier societies is nowadays conducted with a number of colleagues from very diverse fields. A relentless flux of inputs from anthropology, sociology, biology, geology, botany and, more recently, chemistry, statistics, and the so-called new technologies, has put archaeology at the forefront of multidisciplinary research in the new millennium.

During the Jornades de Arqueologia 2017, we aim at gathering open-minded scholars, actively conducting multidisciplinary archaeological research with no limitations in time and space. ‘Trends in Multidisciplinary Archaeology’ wants to offer a broad and dynamic perspective on the variety of research topics and approaches that are characterising archaeology as a uniquely global science.
